The earliest form of film – the flipbook – is revived by a travelling minstrel whose music is in his pictures.
Volker Gerling has walked 3,500km over 13 years and had thousands of human encounters in search of lost moments. He has compiled these intimate moments into flipbooks and now presents the best of them to audiences all over the world.
Using his flipbooks, a projector and his elegant humour, he creates a narrated ‘thumb cinema’ that exposes what the rushing world doesn’t see.
A gentle meeting of cinema, photography and story.
Presented by Ten Days on the Island
An Aurora Nova production
